MEP for Ireland South, Seán Kelly, last week welcomed a visitors group from his Ireland South constituency to the European Parliament in Brussels. The group was made up of individuals representing the counties of Limerick, Tipperary and Cork.
The visit to the centre of EU policymaking was organised to enable Mr. Kelly’s constituents, including two Fine Gael local councillors to learn more about the role and work of the Irish Member of the European Parliament, gain insights into the operation of the European political system, and to use the opportunity to discuss important local and European issues with the Kerry MEP.
Mr. Kelly, the leader of Fine Gael in the European Parliament noted that “it was a privilege to welcome my constituents to the Parliament and discuss issues that are important in their towns and counties. I was pleased to get the opportunity to discuss with them and exchange perspectives on issues such as employment, job creation, growth and rural development, along with some of the more global aspects such as the ongoing migrant crisis and the Climate Change agreement in Paris”
“These discussions offer great opportunities to bridge connections between EU and local levels and I look forward to welcoming similar groups to Brussels in the coming months and years”.
